Where can I find a Sponge filter? Any suggestions?

To run a sponge filter you'll also need an air pump, but a good LFS should have all the supplies you need to make one. If not, here are some supplies:

The filter:
Lustar Hydro Sponge II Filter
The air pump:
Whisper 10 Air Pump (Tetra)
Airline tubing:
8' Flexible Airline Tubing (Penn Plax)
Air stones:
Air stone Quad Pack

Rocks are good. My amanos spend most of their time on the rocks and very little on the sand.
